solar powered pool heater -HOME MADE SOLAR POWER POOL HEATER

May 18, 2012 – 3:22 am

** Solar pool heating power can be home-made low cost for those who have low budgets who can not pay $ 1000, his is a solution for about $ 300 cost. Need: copper pipes tees flame torch tin wire “U” extruded frame rivet gun and rivets or use silicone to attach the frame in galvanized steel (painted black) gray sheets of insulating foam paint roller silicone spray 5 mm glass sealant all work a 1m x 2m solar panel will give at least 60 degrees in the tap water pressure …. this is because the tubes are in parallel and the speed at which the water flows through the tubes is less than the entry and exit, the heat transfer from the tubes blacks painted ceilings. good luck! questions to alex

  2. It still surprises me, how some people do not know about Xobotano Home Energy (just google it), despite the fact that lots of people save a large amount of money with this alternative energy. Thanks to my buddy who told me about Xobotano Home Energy, I have slashes my power bill by 75% in less than 30 days

  3. Dart labs. Do u have a video or info on how to do this?

  4. hey why dont you take your solar heater and connect it to your pump, that way it is heating up the water of your pool. If you want I can send you a vid on how to do it.
    We made our own. But great video

  5. Great effort! Solar power is really beneficial and the best alternative!

  6. When you want to make use of heat / thermo-syphoning, the hot water out has to go to a higher positioned place.
    If not, it won’t work.
    I would go for a slow pump that extracts the water from the pool and returns hotter water, I don’t know if the pool circulation pump is too fast for the water to heat up in the panel. (as catatonicable suggested)

  7. You can use a saddle valve on the existing pool pump, which shares the pressure to circulate, its an idea to put a oneway valve if its high up and a tap to slow the flow, maximising the heat.

  8. instead of forcing the water through the solar collector with hose from spigot what if you put the source hose right in the pool? would the water flow from the pool through the heater and back to the pool due to thermosiphoning?
